Hello! Welcome to my pride xD
I'm Kiwi, but I'm also known as Avian. I wrote some lore if you're into that kind of stuff, so I hope you enjoy the lore if you even read it! :3
(I will be posting updates in the form of lore as I progress further into the game :3)

It all started when an ambitious young male named Kirunali set out upon the bleak savannah, pursuing his vision of a pride he would serve and die for. It wasn’t long until he met Enarla, a loner like him, cast out of her former pride and wandering the savannah ever since. The two met peacefully, and walked off together, growing rather close, sleeping beside a river with an acacia tree. But when Kirunali awoke, Enarla had gone. Dismayed, he tracked her scent, following her paw after paw, until the sun had set and the moon had rose. When at last he found her, sitting with her tail around her paws, Enarla felt a rush of affection for the lion who would follow her through day and night. The two sat in the moonlit plain, bathing in the light of the full moon, silver light gleaming on every fern and blade, stars glittering with unearthly light high above in the River of Eternity, where Enarla vowed to Kirunali that if they should ever start a pride of their own, she would serve and protect it for the rest of her life, right at his side. And so began the Pride of Alyxii...
Nearing the end of her life, Enarla dragged herself beneath the acacia tree to exhale her final breath. Kirunali sat beside her with tears in his eyes as she peacefully began her journey to eternal life in the stars, where she would watch over her beloved pride from the River of Eternity, beneath the moonlit acacia tree.
Walking around in the Trading Center, Kirunali encountered a young, beautiful male cub abandoned by his former pride. Shocked, Kirunali quickly payed silver beetles to take this cub home to his growing pride. Walking home, Kirunali observed the cub closely for the first time, noticing the thick, overgrown fur, bobbed tail, and long fangs. This cub had a primal mutation! Kirunali figured this was the reason why the cub's original pride had rejected him. Arriving, Kirunali quickly arranged a spot in the cave for the cub, as well as food and a feather for the cub to play with. The cub got along well with the other cubs, calling himself Avizan, and the nursing lionesses adored his thoughtfulness and energy for tending to their needs. He displayed great skill in leading, as well as compassion and encouragement while playing “Hunting” with the other cubs. However, during the great drought, Avizan fell ill due to the dry air and lack of water, and was sent to another pride, led by Kirunali's friend Jirathi, to be properly cared for.
Kirunali looked on, wondering whether he was the one, the future King he could entrust his pride to when the end of his days were near.
When the last rays of the sun shone on his fur, Kirunali let out a resonating roar, calling the pride to come. Old and elderly now, Kirunali had been forced to admit that he must choose a successor. He rested his muzzle on Avizan’s head, and as Avizan looked up, shocked, Kirunali gently told him that he was the successor he had chosen to shine at the head of the Pride of Alyxia. Recovering, Avizan vowed to serve the pride his whole life, and to be a worthy successor to the crown. Nodding approvingly, Kirunali stepped back for Avizan to take his place.
After the crowning, Kirunali hobbled over to the acacia tree, and sat down, gazing at the starlit river. He would live out the rest of his life peacefully, the blood washed off his paws, until at last, he would see Enarla again.
